The installed version of PanOS on my pa-3020 is different then the installed version listed on my name configuration snapshot. Is this a bug?

L1 Bithead

On my pa-3020, we have PanOS 9.1.4 installed, 9.1.4 is shown as the installed version on the PanOS web UI.  However, when looking at the name configuration snapshot, the name snapshot says the installed version is 9.1.0.
Is this a common error to see a different version installed on the pa-3020 PanOS web UI, and what PanOS says is installed on the name configuration snapshot?

Thank you.

a configuration file is valid for an entire OS main version (9.0 , 9.1, 10.0 ,...) .0 is the base image for each code train

the maintenance release versions installed afterward are irrelevant to the configuration file as none of the elements change while in the same OS version (they're just a string of bug fixes)

 

between major OS version, config elements can be added or changed so it is important to know the major version only

 

hope this helps

That's exactly what I needed to know, thanks Tom!

 

Also, have you ever considered making a udemy course for your knowlage of Palo Alto?  Right now there is only one.  
Just wondering, thanks again! 

That's actually an awesome idea, thanks @AndrewPaloAlto

Yes, during covid, people seem to be investing time into increasing their skills, so I thought maybe now is a good time to considering creating a video walk through.  
The current Palo Alto walkthrough posted on udemy is good, however I would like to see more options.  
Just my 2 cents.  

Thanks again!
